Model Concept: Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

From Berdahl (2010): "Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) consists of a cluster of symptoms characterized by unstable, impulsive behavior. The DSM-IV-TR (Diagnostics and Statistics Manual IV-Text Revised) lists nine BPD symptoms. They are fear of abandonment, unstable interpersonal relationships, identity disturbance, impulsiveness, self-mutilation and/or suicide, affective instability, empty feelings, inappropriate anger, and dissociation. An individual must have at least five of these symptoms to receive a diagnosis of BPD (American Psychiatric Association, 2000)."
